It was really fantastic to come across the place (accidentally) and get an early dinner. The look of the place is royal, the staff was very friendly and, most importantly, the food was a real gastronomic gem.

We come here now more often, as it is such a great place for lunch. No rush, good food, and very polite and efficient staff. We had dinner also a few times, and you get value for money.

I was away from Belgium living in London for the last 5 years and now back. I love the metropole bar as it has an outside heated terras and great in the winter Now that I am back the service is terrible and staff only...speak English and only few speak French. When I did my order (I speak Fr/Dutch and English) I started speaking Dutch and the staff answered in English “ i will get my colleague “. For a 5 star hotel this is unacceptable not to speak the country languageMore

While we were staying in the Hotel Metropole we thought it might be a bit lazy eating in the attached restaurant but we’re so glad we did! We had the steak frites and a lasagne dish which were both incredible. The surroundings are amazing and...the dessert was great too. So pleased we decided to eat here!More

First, the setting. Probably the most beautiful restaurant/bar in Europe. A triumph of belle epoque design and construction. A huge room, brightly lit to show off the intricacy of the decor. Second, the meal. We were allocated a table by the window so that we...could look out to the skating rink and in to the magnificent room. The meal and service were outstanding. Delicious shrimp croquettes for starters, followed by the Cafe’s signature dish of scallops, leeks and potatoes and an exquisitely cooked and presented sole meunière. A friendly welcome when we walked in was a good start. Our waiter was helpful and polite, and his good English helped us out with our occasional stumbles in French. Including aperitifs and a fine bottle of Sancerre, the bill came to just under €150 before a tip, which we considered excellent value for money given the setting, service and quality of food. Highly recommended if you want to treat yourself in Brussels not just in the festive season but at any time of the year. Bravo, Cafe Metropole!More

Lavishly decorated. Excellent food in a classic Francophone cuisine with the expected addition of Brussels mussels. Smart waiters, attentive, prompt service. Expect to pay €120 for two with drinks. Well worth it.
